This rare oak pen case is the ultimate in luxury desk accessories.

The imposing pen case is lovingly handcrafted out of rare, 5,300-year-old bog oak. The dark, unusual wood is complemented by exquisite silver inlay. Upon opening the box, stationery lovers will discover a rippled sycamore interior that beautifully contrasts the dark outside of the pen case. The pen holders themselves are also ringed in silver to more impressively showcase high quality writing instruments. A hidden compartment within the pen case stores back-up ink cartridges.

Recently, a backlash against the impersonal quality of email and text messages has led consumers to once again value handwritten missives. Thus, analog writing instruments such as typewriters and high quality pens become items of luxury and novelty. This pen case is a perfect way for a stationery lover to display a collection.
